Appalachian School of Law tuition is guaranteed to remain at the same level for the first year of your attendance at ASL. Your tuition will adjust accordingly each year thereafter if:

  • There is a higher tuition cost implemented
  • A disruption in your enrollment changes
  • You drop from full-time to part-time status

ASL creates a student budget (also known as Cost of Attendance) for each academic year. The student budget consists of direct costs (i.e., tuition and fees) and indirect costs (i.e., housing, food, transportation, and personal). Allowances are provided to assist in meeting educational costs and are not intended to cover individual expenses, which vary greatly depending upon personal lifestyle.

ASL realizes that law school is an investment, so we try to help minimize the effects of over borrowing the best we can by offering financial advice. For a personal financial review, please request an appointment by emailing
